Hey cheapy and wombat,

I've just started listening to the show and i've started downloading past episodes. I think its great! Anyway I have a ps3 and im getting a 360 soon.Can you suggest any first purchases or must buys for my new 360.

P.S. I'm really hyped about fable 2. I heard about Peter Molyneux making promises he didnt keep for fable 1 but he says now he is only showing features that have been already put into the final game.

P.P.S. Wombat, dont be afraid to get hyped about fable 2.Hype is a good thing!

Hey Cheapy,
Now that the format war is over, I wanted to take a minute to take a look at BlueRay. In the last CAGcast, you said that the visual jump from DVD to BlueRay was not as big as it was going from VHS to DVD. I agree, however, you overlooked that DVD not only offered better quality picture, it also offered more features and usability. Can you remember when it took you 20 minutes to find the part of a movie you wanted to show your friend? Or how you had to turn the VCR off before you rewound, because you didn't want to damage the tape? When special features (rare as they were) either had to come on a separate cassette or after the credits?
But it got me thinking about when I was in middle school and my friend bought the Record of Lodoss War boxed set for $300. It was the size of a house. I think it had about 40 cassettes. Now, I believe the DVD boxed set is only 4 discs and goes for something like 60 or 70 bucks. I'm was a TV studies major in college, and that field really blew up because DVDs made it affordable to own and store. Now BlueRay has been waving this MASSIVE STORAGE in my face, yet I haven't seen them use it to offer TV series. Wouldn't it be great to get entire seasons or even series on one disc? That's a benefit of BlueRay that can be taken advantage of, even to those who have no HDTV sets. Shouldn't Sony or whomever get on someone's ass about this?

Hey Cheapy,

ESPN has reported in the last couple of days that Barry Bonds is saying he will play in Japan this year if a Major League Baseball team doesn't sign him. Right now the only team talking to Bonds even a little bit is the Tampa Bay "Rays", and even they don't seem to be interested. So what do you think of Bonds in Japan? Is the Japanese media on to this already? Do you think the Japanese people would hate him for being a steroid-using cheater? Or just for being a jerk?

Hey CheapyD

when i turn 18 im going to be taken to tokyo by my parents as a graduation gift from high school because going there has always been my dream. would it be smart if i took a small class for the japanese language before i go out there and if so, do i need to learn it fluently? or just a little bit to go around and do you have any suggestions on how i should prepare to go to japan. just wondering i wanna make sure that im fully geared for japan =)

Hey everybody, I have a quick and gross story to tell. I was having problems with my PSP, it wouldn't read my memory card. So while taking a piss I took my memory card out of my PSP and guess where it landed. I couldn't flush the toilet to get rid of the piss because that would be bye bye memory card so i had to put a plastic bag on my hand and go fishing. After running the card under the tap, washing my hands and drying it off I put the card back into my PSP and to my delight, IT WORKED! I don't recommend it but if you happen to have a problem with your memory card and a toilet full of piss, you can mix the two together. I know it's gross but I thought I should share my pain (and glory) with fellow CAGs. I also thought it would be something that Cheapy might be interested in as we know that he has done some pretty gross but funny things in his past times (sorry for mentioning that Cheapy).

Thanks guys, love the CAGcast.

This is a question for Wombat

Regarding last week's show featuring Mrs. Wombat...

Did both you and Mrs Wombat go scuba diving, or just her?
Where did you go to learn scuba diving and did you/do you enjoy it?

(I'm big into scuba diving, so I'm just curious)

Hey CAGIronMan, I thought I would give an opinion with your gaming troubles. Getting a DS or PSP pretty much depends on what you really want out of a console. If you want a system with alot of other features as well as gaming then go for the PSP, but if you want a system with a more gaming based protocol then definately go for the DS. If you want more classic games that are alot of fun then go for the DS, or if you want more hardcore gamer type games with better graphics then the PSP is your best option.

I got my PSP about 6 months ago and I still use it alot, but I'll end up getting a DS soon. It just all comes down to what you want out of a system, and what genre of games you prefer. I like both consoles equally so people please don't start calling me biased or a fanboy.

Hope i've helped CAGIronMan.

Hey Cheapy, I have both the 360 and the PS3, and have been through no less than 7 360's in my lifetime due to them breaking. Right now I have an elite and boy is it loud! I used to be die hard xbox but now my ps3 is where I look for all my gaming needs. It is quiet and never had a hardware problem what so ever. My question to you does the noise (fans) of your xbox make you crazy like it does for me to the point of not wanting to play the 360 no matter the game?

Cheapy,

Thanks for the mental image of your hairy nakedness. Can you send me an offical CAG spoon so I can scoop my eyes out? I nearly fell over laughing at work this morning.

Seriously though, have you ever wondered why some of us go bald up top but are otherwise, how should i say, protected from the elements? I'm in the same boat as you and often wonder why science hasn't come up with a way to redirect some of that hair growing action to my scalp.

If there was a way to redirect to your scalp would you go for it or do you like the faux Mr Clean look too much? What are your thoughts?

Hey guys..

As you've discussed on the show before, DMC4's ridiculously long install is basically a result of the slowness of the PS3's Blu-ray drive as compared to a DVD.

Do you think Sony can/should/will eventually just upgrade the PS3's 2x Blu-ray drive to a 4x or 6x? It would certainly improve the load times for games and probably make some hard drive installs optional... at the expense of pissing off the early adopters.

Thoughts?

Here's a question for Wombat (that I think he'll love to answer):

I was a HUGE comic book kid back ten years or so ago until Onslaught came in and ruined comic books for me. I'm thinking of getting back into them but don't know where to start. Is there a series I could pick up to get back into the swing of things? No DC unless it's Batman please :-P

Hi Cheapy And Wombat
Have either of you ever tried looking up porn on your Wii?

My friend and i did once, the controller starting vibrating and and the wii started to make a really loud humming noise, and it froze. the only way to get it off was to unplug it.

Cheapy....

You named my name in the CAGbag section this week, had me all excited....and then never answered the question :(

So....here it is again :)

Have you ever seen the show on G4 called Ninja Warrior? Besides being quite the crazy Japanese competition, G4 now seems to be more concerned with this type of import game show than actual video games.

On Ninja Warrior, old and young men alike attempt to "defeat" an extremely challenging obstacle course, and on some episodes, not a single person completes the course. A lot of the contestants build makeshift courses in their backyard or at their local park. What do you think about building a course and training Tai to be the next Ninja Warrior?

Hey Cheapy!
I was wondering how you met your wife, and what made you decide to move to Tokyo with her, especially considering how little Japanese you spoke. I can understand wanting to cross the world for the one you love, but I would love to hear how the decision was made for you. I'm a relatively new listener (since about episode 85 or so), so I apologize if this had been answered on the show already. Thanks!
